Skylar Grey and Drake

Drake had every reason to be “on one” as he was recognized for his songwriting talents at the 42nd Annual Songwriters Hall of Fame gala at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York last night. The Canadian star was presented with the Hal David Starlight Award by acclaimed musician Jimmy Jam. He celebrated the big night with his mother, who was beaming with pride.

“Just won the most incredible award and performed for my mother…a year ago today she was being wheeled into a surgery room…I love you,” tweeted Drizzy, who rubbed shoulders with music icons Chaka Khan and Garth Brooks.

Skylar Grey showed off her secret talent, playing the lap dulcimer and singing Michael Jackson’s “Human Nature” and Madonna’s “Crazy for You” in honor of songwriter John Bettis.
